finally, some concrete purity ring news. after teasing us with “push pull” a few months ago. well, now with a new song, “begin again,” they’ve also announced another eternity, the follow up to shrines.
the album will be out march 3rd via 4AD. check the cover art below the jump. it’s quite nice.
a new purity ring song has surfaced called “push pull.” megan sounds as ghostly-sweet as ever, but corin’s beats have a streamlined, pop-friendly character to them this go ’round. listen to “push pull” above.
jon hopkins’ immunity has been on nonstop play for me the last few weeks. add to that aural-obsession purity ring’s megan james, who collaborated with hopkins on a remix of her band’s song “amenamy,” who lends her syrupy vocals to a new version of the wafty “breathe this air.” listen to the track below.
london’s jon hopkins, whose ambient techno album immunity from earlier this year is damn good, took his skills and applied them to purity ring’s “amenamy” from the equally stunning shrines. listen to the remix above.
how does purity ring celebrate the grammys? by covering fuckin’ soulja boy, that’s how. the soulja/ester dean single wasn’t bad or anything, it just didn’t do much. i think it’s safe to say that this cover is destined for internet success in the least, as PR have surely made it their own.
in the latest episode of pitchfork weekly, purity ring sat down to discuss a handful of things – namely, destiny’s child and danny brown. the latter of which will be promised some production on his upcoming LP, old. swt.
a danny brown collaboration isn’t the only purity ring news we’ve got today: the edmonton, alberta electro duo have announced a tour through north america supporting their ghostly album shrines. joining them will be nyc-via-australia’s young magic and montreal’s doldrums. check out the dates for the trek, which immediately follow the current european shrines tour, after the jump.
say what? eerie pop duo purity ring and the schizo in danny brown are linking up for the sequel to the former’s track, “belispeak,” which can be heard on their swt 2012 album shrines. blogs rejoice, this is two of your golden children coming together for a jam.
pitchfork’s +1 series followed spooky electro duo purity ring to their show in the round at new york city’s le poisson rouge, where the band performed “fineshrine” from shrines and chatted about their band origins, their fancy new light show, and more. check it out above.
crazy props to the girl at :37 doing the couture wilt.
in the video for purity ring’s ghostly hip-hop “fineshrine,” lyrics like “cut open my sternum and pull” are realized, non-gore-like thank god, as a young woman tends to a man with a unique and debilitating condition. we’ll call it the “medusa complex.” check it out above.
how long have we waited for this one? purity ring have released a video for their glitch-swirl lullaby “belispeak” featuring vocalist megan james wandering about the swampiest of swamps. some baffling, otherworldly creature comes to claim her in the end. not a spoiler. just prepping you for the headspin.
